An intimate lunchtime performance with this witty entertainer, American Songster and multi-instrumentalist.
The “American Songster” made his first appearance at SMF with the Carolina Chocolate Drops in 2008. He has spent recent years traveling the world performing music informed by pre-WWII styles including ragtime, Piedmont blues, spirituals and other southern folk music idioms. In his live one-man show, Dom plays banjo, guitar, harmonica, fife, bones, bass drum, snare drum, and quills, in addition to singing. Creating music that is rooted in history but takes a contemporary approach, Flemons strives to re-examine what traditional music can become.
